The History of Violence
That’s the thing about drag racing… and more specifically, the 1960’s era of the sport… It was dangerous man. More than dangerous, it was absolutely violent. Little to no sophistication behind huge amounts of horsepower. Drivers were passengers. Their right foot controlled whether the game was on or off. Go or no go. Live or risk.
With still images or even video, it’s hard to communicate the ferocity of it all. You have to be there – hear the sounds, feel the sounds, and see the power. Still, a new user recently posted some vintage shots from his collection and they capture one of those senses/dimensions really well.
